Proc1C10N 10GigE frame grabber

Ultra-high-performance acquisition and real-time AI processing

  • Grabbing from 4 x 100GigE links
  • Support for multi-cameras
  • Support for Link Aggregation
  • Acquisition bandwidth of up to 400 Gb/s
  • No frame loss
  • Support for ROI acquisition

The Proc1C10N Gigabit Ethernet frame grabber is ideal for AI, compute-intensive, and low-latency high-bandwidth applications. It consists of Gidel’s powerful Proc10N FPGA module and the Proc1C PCIe carrier board.

The Intel® Stratix® 10 NX FPGA incorporates embedded Tensor blocks and integrated HBM2 memory offering an unprecedented level of processing and memory bandwidth performance. The Tensor blocks achieve 143 INT8 TOPS / FP16 TFLOPS, 15X more compute performance than today’s powerful Stratix 10 MX. The ultra-low latency 3-D stacked HBM2 DRAM offers 10X more DRAM and SRAM bandwidth than discrete DDR4 and QDR memories.

The off-the-shelf carrier-board solution supports: PCIe Gen.3 x16 host interface, 4 x QSFP28 for up to 400 Gb/s aggregated bandwidth, Gidel PHS connector for mounting daughterboards, and 19 x GPIOs for peripheral system control. The PHS offers up to 128 Gb/s Rx/Tx enabling, for example, to connect 8x CoaXPress-12 cameras (CXP-12 daughterboard available via Gidel).

Applications examples:

  • Broadcasting, Image-Processing and Video Analytics
  • Grabbing from 100+ high-bandwidth sensors with real-time image processing
  • Compression and AI application, all running on a single FPGA.
  • Security: deep packet inspection, fraud detection, etc.

The Gidel Proc1C carrier board uses only one of the three Proc10N connectors. The two additional connectors available on the Proc10N board can be used, per user design, for additional 400 Gb/s bandwidth, RDIMM interface and many additional I/Os.

Gidel offers tailoring services for quick development of a carrier board according to the customer’s system requirements.

Grabber architecture type
The Gidel frame grabber boards can operate in one of two unique frame grabber architectures, ProcFG or InfiniVision, by reprogramming the firmware.
Grabber option #1: InfiniVision
  1. Enables using many synchronized cameras and/or to grab compressed images/videos.
  2. All the cameras' data, including from multiple boards, is organized in a single buffer.
  3. Each camera can have different resolution, and pixel format, and may be changed on the fly.
  4. The frame grabber can have one or more instances of InfiniVision, and all cameras of the same InfiniVision instance must be synchronized.
Grabber option #2: ProcFG
  • Each camera has a dedicated ProcFG instance.
  • Frame size and pixel format must be fixed.
  • Option for grabbing ROIs.
  • Optimized for line scan cameras.
  • ProcFG may not be used for compressed data.
  • The frame grabber can have one or more instances of ProcFG.
  • FPGA Option
    Open FPGA | Closed FPGA
    Carrier board
    Option for user or Gidel custom carrier board. For customization services, contact Gidel


    The ProcFG and InfiniVision are each supported by its unique GUI and API suite for developing the user application.  For description of ProcFG and InfiniVision, refer to the Options tab.

    FPGA Programming Suite:

    The Gidel grabber boards are supported by the ProcVision Suite enabling tailoring, debugging, and verification of the FPGA image processing and data flow.

    Customization can be based on the InfiniVision or ProcFG flow, and can include multi-instances for supporting unique multi-camera topologies, as well as, image processing and compression.
